We get so caught up with gift giving on certain occasions that we forget to be thoughtful and intentional about truly showing our loved ones how much they mean to us. In this blog I am sharing with you a few tips on how to show someone that you appreciation them in other ways.
Just to put into perspective, a month has gone by. You guys, we are already one month into the new year. How are you doing on your goals? We had a bit of a set back in our family, because Ryan got sick and then the kids and this lasted over 3 weeks. It’s never fun to have your family not feeling well. It sets your productivity back. It can be very frustrating but I had to look at it in a positive light. This was a time for me to love on my husband and kids a little more by taking care of them.
This week are we are stepping into the month of February, and this year I am really thinking about things that I can do for my husband that are more meaningful and memorable. I think that showing your significant other love and appreciation should not be stressful. I also believe that it should not be scheduled for one day. (Valentine’s Day) I don’t know about you, but I honestly prefer spontaneous and unexpected surprises. Things like my favorite candy from a random store trip, a little note in my phone or a spontaneous card. This is not to say that I don’t like flowers once in a while but I like things that don’t scream, “I bought you this, because I felt like I had to.”
I think anyone would appreciate a thoughtful gesture and it doesn’t have to come in a form of a gift. Whether you are married or single, there are always new ways that you can show love to others. Maybe it’s as simple as doing their daily chore, writing them a little note, prepping a meal or simply calling them and being a person that they can pour their heart out to. Can you image the difference you would make just by doing something as simple as that? I have seen these gestures in action and trust me, they were so much more effective than a stuffed bear or a heart shaped box of chocolates that was half empty. Are you doing it just because everyone is doing it?
I think that one of the ways you can capture something special and more memorable is by doing a photoshoot. I love couples photoshoots because they really shows their romantic side as well as the interaction of a couple with one another. A lot of times we can remember parts of a special day, but as soon as we pull out our photo album it brings back so many more memories. I can say the same thing about my wedding album. It can serve as a great reminder of why you got married in the first place, especially during the challenging moments. This is why I have partnered with a few ladies to give you a chance to win a styled mini couple’s photoshoot. You can click here to go to the direct giveaway post and follow all of the instructions.
"Love is not only something you feel, it is something you do."
This month, think of a few things that you can do that maybe you have never done before to. It’s easy to get complacent and go through the motions in your relationship. Don’t wait for your significant other to do something special for you. Do something special for them. Your kind gesture will not go unnoticed. This is not for couples only. You might have a siblings, a parent, a cousin, an aunt or a friend that would benefit from this kind gesture as well. Be intentional. There are so many ways to display your love and care for someone, not just through a gift.
So even if you are not in a position to buy something, you can always find ways to be creative, after-all, it’s the thought that counts.
